Paternoster is an elevator wich consists of a chain of open cabins. It moves slowly without stopping.
Paternoster means "Our father" (the first two words of the Lord's Prayer in latin).
This elevator is called Paternoster, because it works similar as the catholics use the rosary bead during the reciting of the Lord's Prayer.
